I am not a scientist, and I don't pretend to be one, and I don't play one on these forums. I do know atmospheric CO2 levels are at 392 ppm and they keep rising due to man-made burning of fossil fuels. The charts I posted show this data. I am understanding that our temperature and CO2 increases correlate, and they are tracking upward together. Are you saying climate scientists have this wrong?

I believe in what James Hansen is saying. I believe in what Bill McKibben is saying.

As far as environmental investigative reporting is concerned, Mark Hertsgaard has worked for more than 20 years on climate change. He is the environmental correspondent for The Nation magazine. A recent book of his is "Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth". I urge you and others to watch / listen / read this 17-minute interview on Democracy Now with Mark Hertsgaard from April 15, 2011.
